I'm trying to save a fish I found at walmart yesterday. I brought him home about 7pm last night, it's 5 am now. I tried to take some pics, but my camera is not cooperating. I mean I got some, but they're not great.
Anyway I'm wondering if maybe he's still getting used to his new environment. He has absolutely NO interest in food. I know stressed fish probably won't eat so I'm hoping that's all it is. He's hardly been swimming since I got up this morning, but as I type this he's getting more active. Like swimming like I haven't seen him swim before so I'm already feeling a bit better. Maybe he's trying to tell me I woke him up too early? lol
He looks generally healthy, but his fins/tail look a bit rough. They're clamped too, but as I'm watching him swim now I think they might be getting better. I currently have him in a heated 3 gallon 360 degree view tube like tank. I don't like it that much so he may get a new one soon if he makes it.
The only other thing I can think to mention is how easily he gets spooked. You can walk up to the aquarium, but if you go to touch it at all he darts.
I didn't fill out the form because I haven't tested the water and he's only been in it for less than 12 hours. Temp is near 80 though. Plus he hasn't eaten any food so I guess what I'm feeding him doesn't matter. I'm attempting to feed him pellets though. Omega one to be exact.
Angus was healthy as can be when I got him home, he eats no matter what the situation is, and has always greeted me at the tank. This new fish, who I've started calling Fruity is the complete opposite. I realize no two fish are the same, but I seem to have gotten complete opposites.
